Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Toothache, in rare conditions it can indeed cause swelling to the face. How did this happen?
Toothache there are many possible causes, ranging from cavities, sensitive teeth, gum inflammation, periodontitis, jaw joint disorders, sinusitis, migraine, trigeminal neuralgia, and so on. Some of the causes of toothache can trigger inflammation, both in the gums (gingivitis), and other soft tissues around it (cellulitis). Inflammation is what ultimately triggers swelling, redness, and pain that is quite disturbing. Not only that, the swelling on the face during toothache as you experience it can also be the impact of drug allergies, for example if you take certain toothache medications.
Apart from the effects of toothache, it could also, swelling on your face indicates other conditions, such as insect bites, allergies, crying, kidney problems, heart problems, and so on.
This condition, if it causes you difficulty in eating or talking, you should not let it continue. Check with yourself directly to the nearest dentist so that it is evaluated more deeply, as to exactly what condition you are experiencing. Usually, the doctor will direct you to undergo an x-ray examination, ultrasound, or other supporting tests to determine the damage around your teeth while also identifying the cause of swelling on your face.
For now, you should first do the following trick:
Compress swollen face with warm water
Take paracetamol to help reduce pain and swelling
Not always consuming food and drinks that are too hard, hot, and also cold
Always brush your teeth 3 times a day (morning, evening and evening before going to bed) with fluoride toothpaste, and continue to rinse with an antiseptic mouthwash
Position your head higher during sleep, don't sleep on your side to the swollen side of the face
Hope this helps ...
